Happy Thanksgiving! 
thanksgiving pumpkin pie

I'm very sorry to report thay both Marilyn and I felt really LOUSY today -- worse than yesterday. We both spent a lot of time sleeping.

But we did spend ages watching Thanksgiving parades on TV. And AMC was playing the Jurasic Park movies today -- which we both love -- so we've been watching those.

Before I forget:


Actually, we're watching a Jurasic Park movie as I type this...

Marilyn and I did enjoy our Thanksgiving pizza from Amalfi's today. The last time we had one was back in 2011. (We spent 2012 and 2013 at our beach house for Thanksgiving.)

We also had some coffee and donuts. And we have a pumpkin pie, but we haven't cut it, yet.

So, though we were sick and yucky, we both are still counting our many, many blessings today.

I still need to force myself to go do the garbage and recycling (sigh). Wow, am I NOT up for that! Oh well!

I'm forcing myself to go as soon as I'm done with my blog...

So, as I near the end of this month, I haven't been that great about keeping up with my daily blogging. I think I missed five days in November. The first six months of 2014 I didn't miss a day. But I haven't been that good the second half of the year, I'm afraid. Well, there's always next year!

I want to get back to reading and commenting at LiveJournal next year, by the way. That han't gone well in 2014...

I spoke to several people today. Cousin Linda, sister Sue, our friend (and neighbor) June, our friend Shari and our friend Denise (Donn's wife). (I meant to call Martha, too, but totally forgot as the day went by...) it's nice to connect with friends and family on the holiday.

Please extend good thoughts and prayers for Denise and her family. Their son-in-law Shane had a massive heart attack, and is in a coma. They don't know if he's going to make it. Thanks!

I hope all my American friends had a nice Thanksgiving. Blessings to all my friends! Enjoy your weekend!

So sorry that I did not get you Starbucks. I was busy trying to help get the food cooked and then Tammy and I helped Nicole with some of the food. Bryan got here right when I was talking to you. It was a nice day and the meal turned out very good. Larry, Mady, Levi and Abbey came over about 4:30 and they had not liked the food at Cheryls so they all ate some of our food. Then everyone had pie. Tammy and Ross got it at Costco. I did a ton of the dishes and then Candy finished them. I am all packed. Poor Nancy called and is sick and I do not think she will be going with us. I know Larry and I will have a great time. Tammy, Ross and Dana are driving down together. Hope you feel better. Sending love and prayers to Denise and her family.

Sorry you took a turn down. I hope it picks up again soon!
And, I'm glad you got your pizza!

Will certainly be praying for Shane and family. :)

A belated "Happy Thanksgiving" to all of you there in Oregon! Get well soon! ♥
